November 11, 2015
The health care system needed some structure. Needed to speak the same language and have a common goal, “the Patient.” The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) invested a large amount of money for promotion and use of the informatics technology. Today Medicare and Medicaid are following the same footsteps. They are awarding incentives for the use of Electronic Health Records. However, what is the urgency? Why are they even willing to penalize the non-participant? Patient safety is the answer. The meaningful use was created seeking the quality of care safety and reduction of disparity. The meaningful use wants patient information to be electronically documented in a database system that interconnects to any other health database regardless geographical location. Meaningful use recognizes that making such a drastic change from paper to electronic documentation is very costly.
There are many Issues still present that prevent some institutions from implementing EHR. One of these issues is the financial part that entails. It cost too much to implement EHR’s this is the voice of hundreds of owners of health institutions. Removing the old system from every floor, every station and every office is very costly. On top of that having the employers and employees train on how to use the EHR system is also very absorbent. Acquiring the program itself, is very expensive. These issues have created a prevailing thought among healthcare business owners. “Let’s wait and see what happens.” Somehow they are skeptical. Others health care owners are opting for closing down because implementing EHR’s will absorb a big part of their small income. Others waited to see if this was just a…...

Assignment 2: Use Cases A use case is a methodology that is used in system analysis as a means to identify, clarify, and organize system requirements. The use cases has make up of several possible sequences for users to interact with a system of a particular environment that is in relation to a particular goal. There are a group of elements that the use case consists of, these elements in be in either the classes or interfaces category. Use cases give a description of how users will perform tasks. There are two main parts of a use case; the steps a user will take to accomplish a particular task on the ATM machine, and the way the ATM should respond to the user's actions. A use case will begin with a user's goal and end when that goal is fulfilled. A use case will describe the interaction sequence between a user and an ATM machine. Each use case captures the actor (the user of the ATM machine), the interaction (what does the user want to do?), and the goal (what is the user's goal?).......

To Use, or Not to Use Performance Enhancing Drugs

...Ethical Dilemma The decision maker for the ethical dilemma for the lance Armstrong case is Chris Carmichael, the coach. The decisions are: To always overlook the use of PED or to never always overlook the use of PED. These two choices both have undesirable outcomes. To always overlook the use of PED: This option is undesirable because it the discovery of PED usage will lead to termination from the sport, resulting in failed coaching business. Never overlook the use of PED: This option us undesirable because it will mean that coaching business will not develop. Utilitarianism: The stakeholders that have been identified are: Sponsors, administrators, athletes, The UCI, competitors, media, competitors. All reasonably foreseeable consequences have been identified in relation to each party. Both negative and positive consequences are constructed for the couch discouraging the illicit drug usage. To respect the contractual agreement: Positive • Sponsors will continue funding sporting events • Drugs cause harm or injury to athletes; the health and well-being of the athletes will not be compromised • When an athlete uses drugs, it is unfair to fellow competitors; not upholding commutative justice • The use of drugs in sports affects society’s view of sport in society and society’s trust in athletes • The completive sport will remain between athletes natural abilities and not scientific intervention To respect the contractual agreement: Negative • Loss of......

Drug Use

...Checkpoint: Drug Use and Delinquency Response Christina Whitaker CJS/240 August 8, 2013 Kathy Holder In all honesty I feel that with adolescents they may try drugs just in order to experiment and to see what it’s like or they were most likely pressured into giving it a try by member of their peers. Drug use that’s among adolescents behavior will most likely start before the start of drugs and/or alcohol. According to the studies some professionals believe that adolescents who are basically involved with illicit drugs are simply separating themselves from normality of society in order to try to make a statement. Then there other professionals who believes that the juveniles who participate/experiment with certain drugs other than the use of alcohol and tobacco will most likely allow themselves to fall into a negative environment. Studies shows that adolescents will give all kinds of various reasons on to why they decided to turn to drugs such as: 1. My friends made me do it; 2. I just wanted to feel good; 3. All I wanted to do is to fit in and 4. Just want to try to escape the problems that I’m having. So basically these are just a few of the excuses that adolescents will give in order to try the various drugs. (Titus, Godley, and White, 2006) Also, an adolescent may use drugs as a result or a sign of lacked parental guidance, a strong secure family bond, supervision or let alone the physical, psychological and substance abuse that’s been happening within the......

No Use

...This has many benefits: With a strong metabolism comes a strong immune system. When you burn fat, the toxins are released into the bloodstream, and are quickly carried out of the body through sweat. This inoculates you against the probability of developing cancerous and diseased cells. Therefore, hard exercise—that makes you sweat—is very good for you. Exercise also helps to regulate the amount of insulin released into the bloodstream. Insulin is commonly referred to as “the fat-making hormone.” Its job is to metabolize blood sugar into energy. But too much insulin in the bloodstream keeps your body from burning stored fat. Years of an overworked pancreas—the organ that produces insulin—can lead to “onset (type 2) diabetes.” However, if you use—burn—more calories than you consume, you significantly reduce the chances of developing this disease. Exercise can also help control other problems, such as: Sleep apnea, moodiness, stress, decreased energy, cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol and others. There are too many benefits to list here. But be assured that this tool can help you become a fit, stronger, disease-free, and overall healthier person. When will the “abomination of desolation” appear? How will we know when it has arrive The main goal of aerobic exercise is to keep the heart elevated for an extended period of time for the purpose of strengthening the heart and lungs. The most common aerobic exercise is walking. It is easy to do. You have been doing it......

Use Cases

...Use Cases Christopher Dole Professor Jennifer Merritt CIS210: Systems Analysis and Development 3 February 2013 A use case diagram demonstrates the uses and requirements of a process and its actors. When creating use case diagrams they should be simple and easy to understand so that all levels of outside users can see and understand the roles they have in the overall project (Chen, Slides 6,7). In my first use case we see a use case that addresses the actors and actions for an ATM withdrawal. The use case diagram is simplified and shows how a customer will use an ATM machine to request a withdrawal. It shows the initial interaction in which it is understood the customer will need to enter their ATM Card and provide their PIN to gain access to the account information that is magnetically stored on their card. The high level overview shows a real basic path of the customer requesting a withdrawal and the ATM sending the request to the bank where it receives a confirmation or denial of funds available and then a response is sent to the customer in the form of approval and funds dispersed or a denial. Both will provide a receipt to the customer with the updated balance information or reason for denial. This simple image would be something to provide an Administrator or the like who would be interested simply in the quick path of what is expected. The next UML diagram I included breaks the USE Case into a more specific pattern that shows the events that will take place......

Information Use

...Information Use Ngoc Le CIS207 November 24,2013 Karen L. Miles Information Use Information is used everyday to keep you updated with your personal and work settings. Information used in a business is extremely crucial to an organization because it can help your organization grow and improve with new strategies with the new information collected. Information flow is data that goes in 2 ways among managers and departments. Information can flow vertically meaning flowing up and down among managers and horizontally for information traveling through different departments. In many organizations information is extremely important because without data flowing in and out of departments and passing through different people you can have a successful organization. Each manager is in charge of a different part and each departments covers different things in order to complete the job. With information passing vertically and horizontally it keeps everyone updated with new data. The five most basic departments every organization would be accounting that helps keep track of all the financial parts of the business, Production will produce the product, Marketing will handle all advertisements and selling the product, human resource department helps find and hire new employees and last would be researching all products and discovering new things. There are three different management levels in most organizations, Supervisors, Middle management and then you have the top management.......

Uses of Lithium

...Uses of Lithium Ceramics and glass Lithium oxide is a widely used flux for processing silica, reducing the melting point and viscosity of the material and leading to glazes of improved physical properties including low coefficients for thermal expansion.[83] Lithium oxides are a component of ovenware. Worldwide, this is the single largest use for lithium compounds.[82] Lithium carbonate (Li2CO3) is generally used in this application: upon heating it converts to the oxide.[84] Electrical and electronics In the later years of the 20th century, owing to its high electrochemical potential, lithium became an important component of the electrolyte and of one of the electrodes in batteries. Because of its low atomic mass, it has a high charge- and power-to-weight ratio. A typical lithium-ion battery can generate approximately 3 volts per cell, compared with 2.1 volts for lead-acid or 1.5 volts for zinc-carbon cells. Lithium-ion batteries, which are rechargeable and have a high energy density, should not be confused with lithium batteries, which aredisposable (primary) batteries with lithium or its compounds as the anode.[85][86] Other rechargeable batteries that use lithium include the lithium-ion polymer battery, lithium iron phosphate battery, and thenanowire battery. Lubricating greases The third most common use of lithium is in greases. Lithium hydroxide is a strong base and, when heated with a fat, produces a soap made of lithium stearate. Lithium soap has the ability......

The Use of Internet

...The use of internet has continuously grown due to the changes and improvements in technology and the growth in globalisation, meaning that businesses are able to access new customers in more markets and expand along with existing customers gaining easier access to the company. This then leads to an increase in profits for the business. However it can also be a negative impact on some businesses with the use of high street stores and branches not being used as often and therefore lead to a decrease in profits because of the increased use of the internet. The use of comparison websites are becoming more and more used especially for car insurance companies, which reduces producer’s profits. Websites like gocompare.com, moneysupermarket.com and travelsupermarket.com are few examples of comparison websites used for the comparisons of holidays and insurance. These businesses let you fill in the needs and information you have, to then show you a variety of products and services to fit this request and then you are able to compare the prices of businesses to find out what the best one is for you. By doing this, consumers do not have to spend long periods of time filling their details in for each individual business and ringing up many of them. This will benefit the smaller firms who may offer cheaper insurance than the larger ones as they are being more recognized and appeal to more people through the comparison websites and even though larger firms spend a lot of time and put a......

The Use of Force

...The Use of force by law enforcement Alphonso Jones ECPI University Eng 120: ADVANCE COMPOSITION Professor Amity Brown 10/16/2014 The use of force by Law Enforcement What is the reason for the use of force by law enforcement? The use of force can be that of one’s race, more against minorities and the weapons that are being used seems to play a factor in the use of force. The use of force by law enforcement is becoming a large topic in today news.  There have been several killings, beating, use of pepper spray, Taser guns, guns, and baton use. What is the use of force? The website Case Law 4 Cops states, “Excessive force means the physical force that exceeds the degree permitted by law or the policies and guidelines of the law enforcement agency. The use of excessive force shall be presumed when a law enforcement officer continues to apply physical force to a person who has been rendered incapable of resisting arrest.” There are many stories about the use of force by law enforcements for example here in Charlotte, NC recent accusation of use of force with the police occurred one morning in September 2013 around 2:20 am.  A call came from the Bradley farm development in an upscale part of north charlotte.  The call came from a woman that stated that she had a black man at her door that was knocking loudly.  The woman stated that she was thinking that it was her husband when she opened the door but closed it quickly when she noticed that it was not her husband and......

Media Use

...or another. My media use is something like a never ending marathon. Based off my recordings, the results show a significantly huge amount is phone usage, and a decent amount of TV/iPad use. In a lot of situations my media use is more instrumental rather than habitual. For instance I could be in the middle of cooking and feeding my nephew but yet I still have the nerve to reach for my phone without it going off. In the process of arriving at the airport and waiting to board, I noticed there are things everyone else does along with myself that has to do with media use. The repetitive action of checking my phone is more frequently becoming something like a hobby. That says a lot about my media use, it's something I do without even thinking about it sometimes. and get deep into whatever I'm doing. On my chart, I observed while doing my homework I would look over to my phone or constantly grasp it for no reason. The average person checks their phone one-hundred and ten times a day. I can say the longest period of time without touching or using my phone is three and a half hours, and that was because I was on a plane. But on a normal routine day I'd say no longer than forty-five minutes, this has become the norm for me within the last three years. During the days I spent recording my media use, I also asked e few people I encountered what's the first thing they do after waking up. And the majority of them said they check their phones first thing. The use of phone and TV......

Use of Force

...Use of Force The use of force is inevitable in police work. In many situations the lives of officers or civilians can be taken by not using force when necessary or using it improperly. Many factors come into play when an officer decides to use force. This includes is the use of force justified, has the officer been properly trained to use force, and will the department be held liable if the force is used improperly? There are two types of force in police work. One is non deadly force and the other is deadly force. Non deadly force is force that, when used, is not likely to result in serious bodily injury or death. Now just because it is not deadly does not mean you can run around and be using non deadly force because you feel like it. To use this type of force you need to have reasonable force. Reasonable force is limited to the amount of force necessary to accomplish lawful results. Say Officers are arresting a man that is kicking and punching, those officers can use only enough force that is necessary to control the situation. If the officers were to start throwing punches back that is excessive force because now they are adding to the fire and not just trying to control the situation. One huge problem for officers is that reasonable force is subjective. This means it all depends on the situation. One thing might be reasonable force for one cop but may even be excessive force for the other due to situations and perhaps even the size of the officer. Due to the intense......

The bands are designated EFF1, EFF2 , and EFF3 - EFF1 being the highest band. The band must be declared by means of a label on the rating plate and in the catalogue. With all of its WP premium efficiency motors falling within the higher bands, Brook Crompton will, in addition, give greater visibility by means of stickers on the motors By encouraging the use of motors in the higher efficiency ‘band’ EFF1 , the European Commission expects to reduce significantly the consumption of electricity by industry. This in turn will lower the environmentally harmful emissions from power stations. Scheme benefits ... ... to motor users The use of higher efficiency motors is financially beneficial, almost by definition and regardless of any scheme: ● higher efficiency means lower losses resulting in lower running costs ● savings increase with motor use ● short pay-back periods ● helps combat the additional burden of the climate change levy ● opportunity to reduce your tax liability by claiming an enhanced capital allowance (ECA)1 ... to motor buyers You will now be able to class your own equipment into efficiency bands, dependent on the application or customer branch: ● simplifying motor selection procedures where efficiency is an issue ● using what will become a well know label, appearing on the motor ● adding value to certain......
